High Wycombe, UK and HERZLIYA, Israel – 8 March 2016: Today’s organizations are increasingly reliant upon SaaS and cloud applications to conduct their daily operations, from managing the sales funnel to contacting their customers. But these commercial applications also expose the organization to a myriad of threats, including:
Exfiltration of sensitive data such as customer records, sales prospects and personal data
